Not seeing the Olympics

It looks like Beijing's air is getting worse, not better, before the Olympics, by James Fallows's account.

And here is my pic of the Bird's Nest Stadium, a beautiful structure if/when you can see it through the smog. This was a "clear" day, relatively speaking, in late April.

Good luck athletes (and visitors).

The Next DNC Ad-Blitz

This will certainly make good fodder.

Not only lying about his voting record (or is it just senility?), but standing arm-in-arm with President "25% Approval Rating" Bush on the day they lost New Orleans.

Nice touch.

Wasting Oil

I wonder how high gas prices have to get before Americans revolt against NASCAR?

Given that we have such precious little time left to play with our oil, you think maybe we--as a society--could decide to, you know, stop wasting it on inefficient cars driving corporate advertisements around in circles? Really fast circles.
